How long have you been involved with Girls on the Run? This is my first season
What inspired you to get involved with GOTR Rockies? My daughter. Eve is 9 and was inspired to start running by the summer Olympics last year. She and my husband started running, and I wanted to get in on the action!
What’s the most rewarding thing about being involved? Seeing the girls take the mindfulness-based lessons we offer to heart and hear their stories or witness their acts of bravery, kindness or empathy.
